This quote could apply to almost anything you do in your life, but especially can apply to travel. If you never go anywhere and never see anything other than your own backyard, thinking that you will go when the kids are grown, or when the kids move out, or when you get that big promotion, or when you whatever, you will never, ever experience a different part of life. Travel doesn’t have to be far away or expensive. Go to a nearby city and wander around the city center. Have a meal, walk around, soak in the differences.
Just the small bit of traveling I have had the good fortune of experiencing has made me see the world in a different light. It has made me see how small and insignificant we really are and how big the world really is. It has made me see how other people live and what they think is important to them. I have experienced different cultures, different scenery, different foods, different homes, different language. I can’t imagine waiting until I think I have the perfect moment to go. That will never come. There never is a perfect moment in time. You just have to go! Do it now!
